NCAC Forensic Interviewing Training

September 20 - September 24


Learn the internationally-recognized NCAC Child Forensic Interview Structure online in our interactive virtual classroom. NCAC instructors are practicing interviewers which allows them to engage beyond typical lecture methods with the most current, evidence-based, and practical experience. The training has been adapted to our virtual classroom and includes participant discussion, mock interview practicum with facilitator feedback, review of recorded forensic interviews, and experiential skill-building exercises.

To enhance the trainee’s continued education and skill development, each trainee receives access to additional training materials online, periodic follow-up calls with the NCAC trainer, and post-training e-mail and telephone support, as requested.  As new research is incorporated into forensic interviewing practice, updated training materials are made available to past trainees.

The NCAC Child Forensic Interview Structure is a flexible structure that can be adapted to children of different ages and cultural backgrounds, and is appropriate for interviewing children who may have experienced sexual or physical abuse or who may be a witness to violence. The NCAC forensic interview model emphasizes a flexible-thinking and decision-making approach throughout the interview, as opposed to a scripted format. Each component of the model is research-based and is reviewed annually for appropriate additions or adaptations, by a panel of practicing experts.

Who Should Attend?
• Professionals who have the responsibility for conducting the initial investigative/forensic interview of a child
• Tenured child abuse professionals desiring to sharpen existing interviewing skills
• Professionals desiring to learn the current NCAC Child Forensic Interview Structure

Since 1998, the NCAC has provided Forensic Interviewing of Children Training to thousands of professionals from all 50 states and 12 foreign countries, as well as personnel from the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, and non-governmental organizations. Past participants have been affiliated with children’s advocacy centers, law enforcement, child protective services, medical services, legal agencies, and therapeutic practices.

In order to foster a dynamic and unique learning experience, the virtual class size is limited to 30 trainees per session. This training is intended for professionals currently working as part of an investigative agency, a multidisciplinary team (MDT), or a children’s advocacy center (CAC). Because of the high demand for this training, professionals currently working as part of an investigative agency, a MDT, or CAC will be given priority to ensure that they have access to the training they need.
